Higher

Lyrics: Driscol, Markowski
Music: Driscol, Markowski

A song first played by the New Riders of the Purple Sage in 2006, written by drummer Johnny Markowski.

Working in my garden, praying for a good crop
Living in the mountains, I got a very sweet spot
Smoke in them trees, I feel the cool breeze
I got myself a cocktail, my woman she been all I need

Higher than I've ever been
I'm so high, don't think I can come back again
Higher than I've ever been
I'm so high, don't think I can come back again

Fireworks in the backyard, the carnival is breaking down
It's always a freak show when the Carneys come to town
Down in the valley, all the people they've been waiting on me
I'm gonna sing my song, really love who I wanna be

Higher than I've ever been
I'm so high, don't think I can come back again
Higher than I've ever been
I'm so high, don't think I can come back again

Starting off a new day, I'm waiting for the clouds to clear
I sing about the old times, and wishing they were still here
On top of the mountain, I feel like I've been blessed
I'd like to thank you all, and I wish you the very best

Higher than I've ever been
I'm so high, don't think I can come back again
Higher than I've ever been
I'm so high, don't think I can come back again

Working in my garden, I pray for a good crop
Living in the mountains, I got a very sweet spot
Smoke in them trees, feel the cool breeze
Got myself a cocktail, my woman she's been on her knees

Higher than I've ever been
I'm so high, don't think I can come back again
Higher than I've ever been
I'm so high, don't think I can come back again
I'm so high, don't think I can come back again
I'm so high, don't think I can come back again
